Youngevity Holds Company-Wide Service Project on ‘Be The Change Day’

Everyone has a story, and Youngevity International is helping children tell theirs during the company’s Be The Change Day on Wednesday.

The day-long affair is taking place ahead of Youngevity’s 2016 Convention this week in Salt Lake City. Distributors and employees in town for the event have the opportunity to participate in a company-wide service project through the Youngevity Be The Change Foundation.

To reach the local community, the foundation is teaming up with one of its charitable partners, My Story Matters, an organization that helps families facing difficult circumstances by creating customized storybooks for children. On Sept. 7, Youngevity volunteers visited two locations in Salt Lake City to interview children about their lives and hopes for the future, which will be recorded in a personalized book for each child.

“I don’t think there is a better legacy to give a child than hope for their future and strength for their life’s journey, and I’m so proud that so many of our distributors have volunteered for a 12-hour experience with My Story Matters that will certainly remain in the memory of their hearts for years to come,” said Lisa “Sunshine” Briskie, Director of Youngevity Be The Change Foundation.

In the first half of the day, volunteers visited a local high school, where refugees from more than 70 countries were among the children interviewed. The afternoon session was held at a local homeless shelter that, on any given day, houses about 200 children.
